The 3 Stroke Accent

Difficulty: easy to moderate


A three stroke accent is a very fast tremolo of only 3 strokes. The Stroke pattern is down up down. These 3 strokes are played very fast as though they are one stroke. It is usually played at the beginning of passages to make them more interesting and more intense. I can’t emphasize enough how useful this technique is. Practicing it will help your tremolo become more controlled as well.
